The actress hushes up an old rumor about an alleged affair with her colleague at the 2004 Oscars.
Scarlett Johansson denies an old rumor that she allegedly had sex with Benicio del Toro in an elevator.
During theSkimm’s 9 to 5ish podcast, the Hollywood star was asked to comment on the strangest gossip about him, and the 37-year-old referred to the “absurd” rumors of the affair with Del Toro.
“There was a rumor going around for a long time that I was having sex in the elevator,” Johansson revealed. “It’s a story that has haunted me for a long time. I’ve always seen it as something offensive ».
«I always thought to myself« It would be hard. It’s a very short period of time, the logistics seem so unattractive to me. ” I am someone who is terrified of being caught doing something they shouldn’t. So that made the story even more absurd for me. “
While not mentioning Del Toro’s name, it is clear that Scarlett was referring to that situation. The gossip told of a sexual relationship between Scarlett and Benicio in the elevator of the famous Chateau Marmont hotel in Los Angeles, after the 2004 Oscars.
“They probably still write stuff like that, but at the time, when I was younger, I thought it was acceptable to write bad or stupid things about young actresses,” he added.
